Harrington Hall, as well as its close neighbor Schiff Hall, gaze out upon the North-Quad where you will frequently find students studying, playing Frisbee, and catching up with friends. Harrington Hall has traditionally been home to Healthy Options and Substance Free living, which set it apart from other residence halls. Students who indicate on their housing application they prefer a substance free or healthy option roommate will be randomly assigned to rooms throughout the building.

Healthy Options is an environment based on the wellness concept: attempting to live a balanced, healthy life by focusing the physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social, and vocational dimensions of wellness. To live in this community you must be committed to living a balanced lifestyle and supporting others in their efforts to do so.
One of the special advantages of living on the Healthy Options floor is the sense of community derived from shared values and experiences. Residents are given opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills needed to live a healthy lifestyle. These programs are designed to meet the needs and interests of the community, and may include first aid and CPR training, nutrition and fitness assessments, and stress and time management workshops. Many of these programs will be sponsored by the Resident Assistant, but each resident is encouraged to participate in planning and organizing these programs. Staff from Counseling, Health and Wellness Services, the Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement, the Physical Education Department, and Residential Life are available as resources. For 2016-2017 the Substance Free community is on the second floor of Harrington Hall.
Students who are selected live in this community are committed to a substance-free lifestyle. It provides an environment conducive to the needs of students who wish to focus on their academic and co-curricular interests while socially interacting with others who abstain from all illegal substances. For 2016-2017 the Substance Free community is on the third floor of Harrington Hall.
Programming for the community will focus on resident-generated interests and concerns. Residents will be encouraged to assist in developing social and educational programs which support their desire to live and socialize without the influence of alcohol or other illegal substances.
